The first half of the track finds J.I.D. reminiscing on his come-up as an aspiring rapper when his bleak financial situation led to him leaning on a girl for housing and moral support. After the song’s narrator prefaces that listeners will be treated to “a word from our ancestors,” the beat switches to a more grimy instrumental, and that’s when Yasiin Bey takes over for a standalone verse.
